Very small place but things seem to move fast. The meal was very good. The chicken with pineapple sandwich is my favorite but there are lots to choose from. Fries are very good too.

Cooked to order fresh beef burgers. Great fries, great hotdogs and shakes. Attentive, usually fast service, inside or drive through. Usually busy.
